Well, I still love The Fifth Element
. And it's still all the way up there on my favourite film scale.
Need to remind myself when Luc Besson's Young Adult Mass Effect (It's got some flowery name that I can't recall*) movie is coming out. I don't think he'll make a sci-fi movie as unashamedly fun again, but if it's anywhere near as far out as Fifth or Lucy, I'll give it a watch for sure.

Inception is a funny one, I watched it for the first time again recently since it was in the cinema and it's lost a bit of charm for me. It's messy and kind of plain boring in places but then again it's amazing in others. Bit like the Matrix really, great but a bit up it's own arse.
A succinct way of putting it.
I think what works about Inception is the conviction with which it disappears up it's own rear. It presents a strange concept and before anyone can spend too much time asking questions, it's off folding cities and having chase scenes. By the time the heist is getting into full swing, I was like "I don't care how seriously you're taking this flimsy concept, just keep going!"
Well, I think a watch of The Matrix Trilogy is now in order!
